Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes


  • 150g farfalle
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 1/2 jar quartered artichokes
  • 1 handful spinach
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 1/4 vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup mix grated cheese (I used scarmorza and parmesan)
  • 1-2 tbsp butter
  • 1 handful breadcrumbs
  • 1 small bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped


  1. Cook pasta in a pot of boiling salted water until 1 minute before it becomes al dente. Reserve a small cup of the pasta water for later.
  2. Preheat a saucepan with olive oil on medium heat. Cook the garlic and chilli flakes for 1 minute. Pay attention to not burn the garlic and reduce the heat if needed.
  3. Add artichokes and spinach, cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  4. Stir in cream and vegetable stock. Reduce the heat to medium-low with a lid on. Simmer the vegetables for about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and wait for the pasta to be ready.
  5. Mix in the cooked pasta and a small ladle of the pasta water plus grated cheese for thickening the sauce on medium-low heat.
  6. Add the butter and stir well. Turn the heat off.
  7. Garnish with some fresh chopped parsley, grated Parmesan, breadcrumbs, and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil before serving.
